It is a well known fact that the Arab world has one of the youngest populations in the world with an astounding 20% of the region being under the age of 25. While saturated job markets, limited government resources and bloated bureaucracies are driving many young people to look for opportunities outside of the Arab world, many young Arabs are choosing to stay and start their own movements and businesses.
